AFL-CIO condemns Hamas attacks, calls for cease-fire


The AFL-CIO on Feb. 8 called for a cease-fire in Gaza. Here’s its statement in full: “The AFL-CIO condemns the attacks by Hamas on Oct. 7 and calls for a negotiated cease-fire in Gaza—including the immediate release of all hostages and provision of desperately needed shelter, food, medicine, and other humanitarian assistance to Gazans—and reaffirms our support of a two-state solution for long-term peace and security.”

The AFL-CIO is the nation’s largest federation of labor unions. It includes 60 national and international labor unions that represent about 12.5 million working people. Five national unions have also issued statements calling for a cease-fire: United Auto Workers, American Postal Workers Union, United Electrical Workers, SEIU, and American Federation of Teachers.
